London is establishing a legacy of stewardship, sustainability and biodiversity as it prepares for the 2012 Summer Olympics. Landscape architect, John Hopkins, has designed an Olympic Park that looks toward the future, incorporating bioengineering techniques to create a beautiful and healthy landscape that adds tremendous value to the area and the planet.
As climate change brings heavier rainfall, the absorbent park design will manage the flow of water into the Thames, as it also protects 5,000 home that are at risk of flooding. The new woodlands and wetlands are an improvement to the former industrial site, cleaning formerly toxic land while helping to minimize pollution and reduce urban heat. The investment London is making sets a wonderful example for future projects of this magnitude.
Feng shui principles are rooted in the quality of energy (chi) in the land. Land that is healthy contributes to a higher quality of life for all involved, ultimately generating more prosperity, health and happiness. Olympic Park, an excellent example of good feng shui and social responsibility, is bringing beneficial changes to London that will help the city, its people and visitors for years to come.
